Lists are everywhere. This one from the Honolulu Star/Advertiser suggests books for children – all good ideas for gifting. Click on the title to read my review:
Every Thing On It by Shel Silverstein
Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Bumble-Ardy by Maurice Sendak
And one I haven’t read yet – Goodnight iPad
Mothers are underrated and overworked, and usually not appreciated until much later – after their children have children of their own – or after they are dead. I remember a local tradition on Mother’s Day that I always looked forward to – buy a carnation to celebrate your mother: white if she were dead, pink if alive.
And the classic Mother’s Day book to re-read aloud today…
Are You My Mother?
– hear it read on YouTube
My favorite P.D. Eastman book –
Always a good idea to keep Mother happy…
